Shooting my Best Friend’s Wedding + Firmoo Winner

Happy Monday!

This weekend was a doozy, but I’m glad to be back in my normal routine. I shot one of my dearest friend’s weddings this weekend, and it was such a beautiful and perfect day! I went to school with Olivia pretty much my whole life, sans college, and played lacrosse together all through high school. Needless to say, we have lots of memories on and off the field! And even though I wish we could see each other more often, it’s nice to have friends like her who you can pick up right where you left off! Here’s a quick recap of the events:

I grabbed the above picture off FB – thanks Heather!

I’ve known these two girls for forever it seems – hard to believe this day happened!!

I took the bride and groom out for their first look, and while we were taking pictures, a massive thunderstorm rolled in and we had to wait it out in the truck! Definitely a first for me, but Olivia and Brian remained unfazed, and now it’s a funny memory.

Here are the sneak peeks I posted on my FB business page:

I’ll be sure and let you know when the full sneak peek and recap are on my other blog!

The wedding was an all day occasion, as in 9am to 10pm, so I was exhausted when I got home! Holy moly, all day weddings are tiring, but SO much fun.

On Sunday, we had family over for a cookout, and my grandmother took her first selfie. Hilarious! Her only comment, “Oh, that really shows my wrinkles!” Bless her heart. But, isn’t Henry adorable?!

And that’s about it! We drove home yesterday evening, and were back at it this week. I’m shooting our church’s VBS Mon-Weds, and then my next wedding isn’t until July 12! And after that, we’ll see what the future holds 🙂

As promised, here are the 5 winners for the FIRMOO eyewear giveaway! All of the winners have been emailed. As a reminder, the code will expire on JULY 1!

    Love the photos as usual! I’m also in love with those bridesmaid dresses! They are so elegant. I wonder were they are from? I am actually going to a wedding this weekend. It will be my first one since I’ve been engaged, so I’m hoping to steal some ideas : )

    Those pictures look great!! The bride is really glowing!
    No weddings for me yet, all my friends are still 20-23 and we are no where financially stable enough for a wedding ):

    I love wedding season! I’m so glad that you were able to shoot your best friend’s wedding. My best friend shot mine and it was awesome because she had such a personal touch to it because she knew me so well. 🙂 Love the pics!
